  1. Hi all!

    I live between Dallas TX and Baltimore MD for college.

    I'm 19 years old. I currently weigh 170 pounds. My lowest weight was (since I got my band)160, but I got my band emptied and gained about 10 pounds back.

    I was banded Dec 2007, and I lost almost 70 pounds, but I still have about 30 left. Ever since I started college I have pretty much fallen off the "band" wagon. I'd like an online buddy that I can talk to daily through email or IMs on AIM that will support me and give me tips and strength. In return I can offer the same. Please help me take full potential of my band!

    I'm ready to do this again

  2. I just got out of a horrible relationship. I've been the type of girl that goes through lots of long relationships. My last boyfriend was horrible to me. We dated a year. He owes me tons of money (over a thousand) and treated me like crap. After I started dating him I gained almost 40 pounds. After I got the surgery he was really rude and acted disgusted when I sometimes would throw up. He was completely un-supportive of me.

    I'm now dating someone new, who is awfully amazing. He is a bit chubby, but ridiculously cute and sweet to me. I've lost about 45 pounds. He is constantly telling me how beautiful I am. I haven't told him about my Lap Band, but he knows that something is weird about my eating habits and my rapid weight loss. I'll post a picture of us later if you girls/boys want to see.

  3. What a horrible let down! I think I would have been too upset to even get out of bed today! We're here for you if you need to talk/vent/scream. Let us know about a rescheduled time.


    Oh- I haven't.

    The doctor said he would call at 8:00 am this morning to discuss planning another, but no call yet ...:faint:

  4. ... never mind. :rolleyes:

    My date got canceled last minute. They called me at 10:30 last night to tell me not to come in at 6:00 am like they had planned

    I feel like crap. It's because my father had a bad reaction to anesthetic and nearly died. Now I might have to wait up to a month more for my banding. :(

  5. I've taken all my tests, and I've been approved for the surgery, but the doctor hasn't gotten back to us for setting the date.

    I am really determined to change my life and not just expect the band to do it for me. I've even got myself a gym membership :)

    Anyhow, thanks for the advice.

  6. My name is Coney.

    I am going to get lap band. I do not have a date to be banded yet. My parents want it to be as soon as possible, hopefully before 2008. Does it take a long time to get the date set? - we are not going through insurance because I am still pretty young (18 in January).

    I used to be very thin before my parents sent me to an all girls boarding school at the begining of highschool where they fed us large amounts of weight gainer, fattening foods, and did not allow us excercise. I gained 70 pounds while I was there. I went from weighing 140 (a little chubby) to 210 pounds! I was released from the schol but have found it nearly impossible to lose the weight. I gave up and now I weigh 230 pounds at 5'4.

    Does the lap band make you lose hair?

    Does it make you depressed?

    Is there anything I should know?

    Thanks for the support :)
